Kulala Desert Lodge provides guests with unrivalled access to the famous red dunes of Sossusvlei. This exclusive, family-friendly property sits on 67,000 acres of private wilderness in the ancient Namib Desert, providing plenty of wonderful locations to view and photograph iconic, arid Namibian landscapes.
Accommodation at Kulala Desert Lodge is in 23 thatch-and-canvas “kulalas”, essentially comfortable chalets containing ensuite bathrooms and verandas. All are elevated on wooden platforms to catch natural breezes, and have flat rooftops for sleepouts beneath the stars. Three of the tents can be converted to accommodate families of four.
The main lodge has a bar, dining area, lounge, sundeck and plunge pool – offering generous convivial spaces for guests to stay cool on warm afternoons and share stories of their Namibian adventures. Activities that can be arranged at Kulala Desert Lodge include hot air ballooning at dawn over Sossusvlei – a truly memorable experience. You can also go on nature walks by day and at night in search of bat-eared foxes and scorpions or enjoy scenic drives and refreshing sundowner drinks. Of course, excursions to the celebrated Dead Vlei and towering dunes of Sossusvlei are not to be missed.
